In the Blueberry Bucket: A Collage of Agricultural History in Carlton County Through Poetry and Photos

Saturday, April 24 10:30 a.m.
Cloquet Public Library, 320 14th St., Cloquet
Duluth Poet Laureate Jim Johnson writes poetry that is cut from the cloth of his Finnish roots, recalling the lives of Finnish settlers in northern Minnesota. It is the quintessential American story of the immigrant experience: of families, hunger, nature and hard work. The Carlton County Historical Society will provide a backdrop to Johnson’s readings with photos from the museum archives depicting agricultural practices from the county’s past.
